I love You THIS Much!

I am soooo glad it is Friday! Yay! That means I’m here to share a fun and super cute lil’ Paper Smooches card!

I added a touch of Copic Marker color to this snowman and die cut him out. I watercolored the base panel and then stamped the sentiment on top and white heat embossed that. I added some black splats and stitching and called it done. Love how simple and colorful it is. 🙂

This is going in my son’s lunchbox one day when it snows. ❤

25 Days of Christmas Tags

Happy Day! Today, I have the good fortune to share a fun tag for Tracey and Technique Tuesday’s collaboration on the 25 days of Christmas Tags! If you haven’t already been there, please be sure to go to my sweet friend, Tracey McNeely’s Blog to check out the entire series up until today, Day 13, and going forward.

I’m sharing a tag with one of my favorite Technique Tuesday sets,  String of Lights Stamp Set colored with Copic Markers.

Gah! Love these lights! This is not Copic friendly paper, so I rolled the dice to try to blend out the colors a smidge, and it worked! I normally blend like crazy, but I just had to keep myself in check so the colors did not bleed. I love how this turned out!

Psssst…There is a Progressive Sale going on over at Technique Tuesday right now HERE! Select items are now 50% off, (Nov 11 – 17: Discount increases to 50% off with coupon code GoodLuck18).

Thank You

Thanks for stopping by today! I’m here sharing a new Paper Smooches card. I can never ever have enough Thank You cards ready to roll! 🙂

I die cut everything and adhered it down, and then die cut the die cuts to complete the card. I also did some embossing with the cross stitch die before adding some final stitching to the panel. 🙂

I thought this turned out so bright and cheerful! 🙂

I Miss Your Face

Hello and Happy Friday–hope your Halloween was a good one! We have too much candy here now, but it will be dispersed down different avenues and be long gone soon. 🙂

Today, I’m sharing this sweet Paper Smooches card. I LOVE this sentiment and wanted to keep it simple. 🙂

I die cut the hearts from felt and added them on with some stitching. Then I stamped the sentiment simply and added some scoring lines to finish off the panel.

I just love the sweet simplicity of it. 🙂 But I do laugh at how long it takes to come to this simplicity sometimes? Haaaaa! 🙂

Technique Tuesday Release Day! November!

Today is the day for all the new Technique Tuesday November products to be available HERE!

For this card, I used the new Technique Tuesday set, Christmas Cocoa Stamp Set! I cannot tell you how excited I was about this stamp set! Merry Peppermint EVERYTHING!! 🙂

I colored all the elements with Copic Markers and then masked it off with a Molotow pen. After that I blended on Distress Oxide inks and added water and lots of paint spatters. The cute snowflakes are from a new release Dani Deer set, as well. I finished it off with some stitching and it’s ready to send to all my peppermint loving friends! ❤

November Release Countdown, Day 2 from Technique Tuesday!

Welcome to Day TWO of Technique Tuesday’s November Release Countdown! Today I get to share this VERY cool die!

I am sharing a card I made withe the soon to be released Sweater Weather Crafting Die. I am looking forward to using this die on all the things this winter! 🙂 This great sentiment is from the new Hello Winter Stamp Set. (*Links will work when the new products are released tomorrow, November 1st)

I die cut this die four times on this card panel and then popped out one row to make them red vs. white. I adhered everything down well, and then attached it all on an aqua note card. A favorite color combo for Winter. ❤  This card is so cozy!
